The winners were announced last night for the 20th British Arrows Craft Awards at the annual show at Planit, Victoria Embankment.

 

The Fellowship Award, sponsored by Framestore, went to editor Paul Watts. Channel 4’s Paralympics advert We’re the Superhumans then went on to win seven awards, including Gold for Writing, Casting, Re-Record, Achievement in Production and Director, as well as taking home the highest honour of the night, Best Crafted Commercial.  

 

Save the Children’s Still The Most Shocking Second A Day took home five awards (including Gold for Performance by an Actress, Editing and Sound Design).

 

The winners were voted by the CRAFT jury, chaired by Somesuch’s Founder Sally Campbell who said: “All of the jury commented on the strength of entries this year, and acknowledged with relief that as an industry we are finally embracing diversity.  Work like ‘We’re the Superhumans’, ‘Save the Children’ and ‘Maltesars’ were not only brave but also beautifully executed. It was also interesting to have VR / 360 experiences to judge this year. Because this is such a new technological dimension, the judges had a fantastic debate on how to judge this category fairly and VR’s place in the future of our industry as a craft in its own right.”
